I have shown you two parts of my chore chart system, how to make the bottle cap magnet tokens and the “help wanted” magnet board. Now I will show you the “heart” of my system. It is very simple to make.
I purchased this caddy at Hobby Lobby. At $5.99 (plus my 40% off coupon) it was a steal! My new best friend, spray paint, made adding color a breeze. I also purchased a pack of wood sticks at Hobby Lobby, and spray painted those as well.
When it was dry I used Modge Podge to adhere various scrapbook papers (these are from October Afternoon). I used my Silhouette and cut my children’s names out of vinyl. Once everything was adhered I sanded the edges, distressed them slightly, and sealed it all with another layer of modge podge.
For the sticks, I typed and printed various chores out using my printer, then cut them out with my silhouette. Again, modge podge to adhere and seal.
I used four colors to help track different chores. One color for daily tasks, one for dining related tasks, one for pet related tasks, and one for weekend chores.
